I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that included actual repair rates. So back in 2005 I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.
We've had excellent participation by owners of many GM cars, including the Malibu, the Lambda crossovers, the Camaro, and the Equinox/Terrain. I'd like to similarly provide some reliability stats for the new Regal--just a matter of getting enough owners involved.
Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, at the end of each quarter.
To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the Regal, for free. I'll share results for the Regal in this thread after each update.
We're currently a single month of data short of the bare minimum for a result next month. Unfortunately, only people who joined earlier can participate in the current round, but additional participants would guarantee a result in August.
Thanks, Hitman. How are G8 GT resale values holding up? I hear that GXPs can still go for nearly what they cost.
Sold my 2009 (not 2009.5) Sport Red Metallic with Sport and Leather package (black interior) no sunroof with 32,650 miles for $23,900 in a Private Party sale.
Netted me $14,000 in equity after loan payoff towards my 2012 Regal Turbo Premium 1 Group with sunroof.
